Omg. He looks nothing like himself. Are we sure that is him.

The text on his card is blurred out but I think it matches the other closer picture posted in this thread. Unless there was a mix-up with the tables I think it's our guy.

If you look closely you can see the facial features.A shell of his former self.I only realised it was actually him as I recognised his wife.

Wow, he looks terrible. It's surreal seeing the 'Raging Bull' like that.

 

I give him an 70% chance of going before 2018.

"LaMotta and his longtime partner, Denise Baker, sat centered in front of a pianist and amid the romantically adorned tables. LaMotta, former holder of the World Middleweight Championship boxing title, has long lived in South Florida and about three months ago moved into Palm Garden."

Says that he only moved there 3 months ago, could he be deteriorating quickly? It appears so!

Well, he's gotta die at some point. And he has already lived about 50 years longer than you'd expect from a boxer/stand-up comedian.

Old people hang on forever in frail conditions. But I'll go for August 2, 2017.

The article does say that he's 95 though, which means the 1921 date might be correct since he turns 95 under the 1922 date in July.

He has looked frail for many years but could still walk a year ago.It says he is now in a wheelchair and needs dressing.It looks like he is being propped up by pillows in the pics.

His wife mentions they keep him comfortable which suggests he might be receiving palliative care.
